Cocoa Mint Lip Balm

    Date : 1999-10-07

    My husband and I go through a lot of lip balm during the fall and the petroleum-based ones seem to dry out our lips in the long run. This is our favorite lip smacker, enriched with both shea butter, and regular cocoa butter. Enjoy


      .25 ounces beeswax
      .33 ounces shea butter, refined
      .33 ounces regular cocoa butter
      .40 ounces sweet almond oil
      2 mL Vitamin E Acetate
      10 drops peppermint essential oil


    Weigh all ingredients, then melt the oils and beeswax in microwave. Add the essential oil and pour into prepared containers. Let them cool, then cap. This quantity fills 4 (MMS) lip balm tubes and 3 (MMS) lip balm jars, with just enough remaining for your anxious family members to sample.
